A father in Colorado is suing the state’s largest school district for not allowing him to display a “straight pride” flag alongside Progress Pride flags at his children’s school.
Nathan Feldman claims his children are being denied their freedom of speech through viewpoint discrimination.
His lawyer argues that the school’s equity policies lead to the sexualization of content in elementary schools. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)
Feldman’s lawyer, Michael Yoder, blamed Denver’s equity policies for “the overt sexualization of content in elementary schools nationwide.”
“If we had more parents like [Feldman], then these policies would never have been rolled out in the first place, and they’d be teaching kids about math and science,” Yoder said.
“They wouldn’t be talking about sexual orientation and homosexuality and having this flamboyant breeding ground for inappropriate content,” added the attorney.
Then the Slavens School principal allegedly replied to an inquiry about a “straight pride flag” in an email stating the district supports the right of employees to post a “rainbow flag or other sign of support for LGBTQIA+ students or staff, because these are symbols consistent with the District’s equity-based curriculum.”
“The District doesn’t allow for other flags,” the principal allegedly told Feldman.
The lawsuit seeks $3 million in damages and aims to hold the district accountable for intentional discrimination.
“It’s simply the straight forward issue of viewpoint discrimination in a public school,” explained Yoder.
“You’re expressing a viewpoint on one topic and you’re silencing our viewpoint on the exact same topic. You cannot do that … it violates the First Amendment,” insisted Yoder.
“White, straight kids don’t have the same rights” in the district’s eyes,” said Yoder.
“Imagine if those two categories of race and sexual orientation were substituted … [with another identity] and see how that would play out in today’s world,” suggested the attorney.
The district has not yet commented on the suit.
